Hello MT team. I am looking for a new carreer change. I have been working for mid size companies, ~60 Employees, for about 8 year and I am looking to move to larger corporations or government work. I have been getting applications out and been following the MT Resume and interview guidlines, (it is a one page layout etc.). I just don't seem to be getting the traction that I expected. If you can provide feedback to the resume that I have below I would greatly appreciate it.

You might want to consider taking your personal contact information off the forum. Just two cents...

As for the resume: it appears that you have the template/style down. Nice job.

You might want to remove the comma between your first name and surname in the title. Perhaps you also could consider moving the dates of employment ot the end of the line (as in right justified) so as to increase the impact of the job titles. Otherwise, remember that recruitment is a black box and we all get to go through a load of what seems wasted effort to get there (well, most of us do!) Best of luck...
